a lovely spring breeze inspired me to try to keep this arrangement airy and light.
dame's rocket, sweet rocket, damask violet, dame's violet, dame's wort, dame's gillyflower, night-scented gillyflower, and mother of the evening
are just some of the common names for this flower.
my mom calls it sweet rocket, so that's what i go with.
columbine and sweet rocket.
bleeding heart and woodland hyacinth.
in a vase from mom. who finds the best stuff!
there's a poem, the wreck of the hesperus, by henry wadsworth longfellow.
it is, of course, spelled differently, but i think of it whenever i cut this flower.
